A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyse a new problem, pitch manure, programme a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialisation is for insects. Lazarus Long, character in a novel by Robert Heinlein (1907-1988)
A politician thinks of the next election – a statesman of the next generation.
Every man has one thing he can do better than anyone
Newspapers should have no friends.
